Additional Light?
    #3380169 - 11/18/04 05:27 PM (12 years, 24 days ago)

Right now I have two cakes in the terrarium. They are getting, I'd say, around 12 hours of light. When my lights are on or when it is light outside there is some light coming in my room. Is any additional light needed (ie, from a lamp, etc) to get them to pin? (They've been in the terrarium for about 4 days now.)

Nope. Might want to consider cold shocking them.

I did. Before I birthed them I dunked/cold-shocked and rolled in verm.

give them a couple more days, keep a good air flow. 12on/12off is the light cycle paul stamets recommends.

"A thorough investigation on the photosensitivity of Psilocybe cubensis can be found in a master's thesis by E.R. Badham (1979). His work reinforces the conclusions of other researchers working with the Basidiomycetes: more pinheads are initiated upon exposure to blue and ultra-vviolet light with distinct peaks at 370, 440 and 460 nanometers. Badham showed that light stimulation at these wavelengths for asw little as half a millisecond per day caused primordia to form. In contrast, red, infra-red and green light having wavelengths greater than 510 nanometers were ineffective"

Thanks. I'm just curious...what are some of the symtpoms of not enough air flow? I have my air pump on 24/7, but there's really no way of telling if the air is coming through the perlite since it can't be felt.

If the water molecules can fit through the perlite, the air molecules will definately make it.

If you are pumping fresh air into a fairly sealed terrarium, might want to consider relieving some of that pressure and making a small hole in the bottum of the terrarium, stuff it with polyfil, it would create more circulation.

Your fruits would be have tall skinny stems as a result of too much CO2 (not enough fresh air).
